I am silver and exact. I have no preconceptions.
What ever you see I swallow immediately
Just as it is, unmisted by love or dislike.
I am not cruel, only truthful---
The eye of a little god, four-cornered.
Most of the time I meditate on the opposite wall.
It is pink, with speckles. I have looked at it so long
I think it is a part of my heart. But it flickers.
Faces and darkness separate us over and over.
Now I am a lake. A woman bends over me,
Searching my reaches for what she really is.
Then she turns to those liars, the candles or the moon.
I see her back, and reflect it faithfully.
She rewards me with tears and an agitation of hands.
I am important to her. She comes and goes.
Each morning it is her face that replaces the darkness.
In me she has drowned a young girl, and in me an old woman
Rises toward her day after day, like a terrible fish.

-- Sylvia Plath

Sylvia, because today is a heavy day, and my own poetry is all sour and clumsy, and because Sylvia's own labyrinthine bitterness is a mirror to my own, which I refuse to look into for one more day.

Hey there, Nine. Don't suppose you recall me. I was that little person who posted that little painting of the dragon a looooooooong time ago that you commented on.
...
Yeah, I know you don't remember, it's okay.
Just thought I'd say hello.
Whoot.

Ah, I remember you. Don't take my silence personally, Koroon, I just haven't been around all that much lately. School is now at a certain level of intensity that I can't really afford to blow study time off like I used to when I was an undergrad and still make good grades. :tears:

So thank you for taking the time to say hello! :)
